There has been much mention about cadmium in chocolate recently that has had many people wondering about how much and possible effects. This very informative, helpful, and reliable resource for awareness and understanding of what can be a complicated subject comes very timely.

I’m looking in every publication if I can find the European limit for cadmium for dry cacao beans. I know they speak about chocolate, but I’m a cacao producer and I sell cacao beans, not chocolate. So my concern is to know the limit in beans. I do a test and find 1.00 mg/Kg or PPM, and I suppose it is a hard level.

I was hoping to read something that would make me feel better about my morning habit of three tablespoons of blended cacao, but alas, I’m still anxious about cadmium. Hopefully, there are some industrious cacao producers and distributors who are learning how to minimize cadmium uptake in their crops. I’d be a happy customer.
What an in-depth and thorough article! Thank you.
